Genre: Augmented reality RPG
There should be little to no doubt that this will be one of the biggest games of 2018, mobile or otherwise.
Little is known about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite so far, but it does appear to be similar to Niantic's Pokemon Go. Both make use of the developer's geolocational data and augmented reality technology, and Wizards Unite will have players searching the globe much like Pokemon Go.
How will it differ from Pokemon Go? No one knows just yet, but we're sure to find out as we edge into 2018 and closer to release date. One thing is for certain: it's going to be interesting.
We may not know much about the game, but we do know how Niantic deals with server issues at the start of a game's release. Here's to hoping they deal with Wizards Unite's overloaded servers faster than they dealt with those in Pokemon Go.
Are these all the high quality mobile games we're going to see in 2018? Certainly not! 2017 was packed with larger mobile game releases but saw a huge wave of quality RPGs and arcade-style games from smaller publishers.
From the gritty dinosaur-laden Durango to the fanciful world of wizards and muggles in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, mobile devices in 2018 are going to see more quality and creativity from bigger developers than 2017 even could have imagined.
